    Default end of analogue radio

    So in 2015 no radio stations will be broadcast in analogue anymore. they will broadcast in digital (dab) only. apparantly only 1% of cars currently recieve dab signals. so where does that leave us with our factory fit radios?

    holy **** thats ridiculous - even if you bought a car today there is a good chance it wont have DAB. lets hope it gets put back a couple of years otherwise a massive industry going to start up fixing them !

    sounds like a bit of scaremongering to me.

    wont just affect cars, wot about all the home hifi's, portable radios & mobile phones which receive analogue signals.

    prepare to see the market flooded with adapters to make them all receive digital!
